Summer is the time for picnics, block parties, and gathering with friends and neighbors. What better way to do this in Worthington, than to close down High Street and throw a party?

Picnic with the Partnership is set to return for a fourth year on Saturday, June 22 from 6:30-10 p.m. We’ll close down High Street in the heart of Old Worthington, line up tables, set the stage for music, play some games, order up local food and drink, and have a party!

To participate, guests just have to buy a ticket for a seat at one of the tables. They’re $15 if you snag them before June 14, and $20 after. And tickets are limited – they will sell out! 

The evening of the party, you’re welcome to pack a picnic from home or pre-order a dinner from The Whitney House, La Chatelaine, The Half Pint, or Everest Cuisine.


Beer, wine, and cocktails will be sold during the picnic (sorry, you can’t bring your drinks from home!). The DORA will be in effect that night, so you can snag a drink from any of the neighborhood restaurants, bars, and wine shops to enjoy with your dinner, then walk around and visit local merchants. Craft beer fans are in luck: Rhinegeist Brewery’s truck will park at the party to serve their favorite brews.

And the party doesn’t end with dinner! Local favorites Matt Steidle and That’s The Breaks will be playing on the stage, followed by the headliners, The Moonbats. There’s a cake walk, and games for the kids. Old Worthington merchants will be open, so you can stroll the neighborhood, drinks in hand, and experience the best our city has to offer.

Most important of all: the event is in support of a good cause. Proceeds from the picnic go to the Old Worthington Partnership and its efforts to promote the district.

Did we mention you should get your tickets soon?
